good shopping day

January 16, 2010

I met up with a friend for lunch and a trip to Value Village today, and did I ever score big!

I usually don’t find anything to amazing at Value Village because they are picked over so easily. However today I found two great additions to my closet, all by luck.

The first is a pair of amazing vintage booties. They are short, with small heels, and snap up the side. Some of the snaps have lost the matching suede covering and reveal the brass button underneath, but I like how it looks. The toes are slightly pointed but more of a rectangular point if that makes sense. They are perfect, and I was actually looking for some more short boots so I couldn’t say no! The best part is, they were only $8!!!!!

Second, I found a lovely 100% wool navy blue over sized cardigan from the men’s section. I found a nice one in the ladies sweaters but it had holes all over one sleeve and a rip in the cuff. The one I bought only had a tiny hole in the back, which I can darn, and is missing a few buttons. For $5 who cares about missing buttons!

I love thrift shopping, what have been your amazing finds?

  1. I’ve never done well at thrift shopping but have occasional big success with sale shopping. Two winters ago I bought a Radley handbag in a style I’d never seen before. I used it for about 3 months then sold it on eBay for more than I had paid. That made me happy.
